A man put his hand through a window at his family’s home because he felt they were picking on him when he arrived home late.
Adam Robinson became frustrated when he was asked to be quiet as he came in during the early hours and shouted for his sister’s dog.
He was left with serious damage to his hand and needed hospital treatment following the incident in Holmfirth on October 20.
At 1am Robinson returned to the address in Woodhead Road, where at the time he was living with his parents and sister.
His mother was awake waiting for him to come home and heard his key in the door.
Andy Wills, prosecuting, said: “He was shouting for his sister’s dog to come out. His mum went and asked him to be quiet and not call the dog at that time in the morning.
“She’d heard the defendant swearing. He’d been drinking and was out all day. She said he’s aggressive and frightens her when he’s in drink.”
Kirklees Magistrates’ Court heard that Robinson was agitated and telling the family where they could go.
All of the family were awake by this point and his father told him to go to sleep.
Robinson raised his fist and punched the window.
He cut his arm badly and used a towel to try and stem the bleeding.
An ambulance arrived before police and the 20-year-old was taken to hospital.
When he was arrested he was aggressive with the officers as they tried to place him in handcuffs.
Robinson, now of Plantation Drive in Newsome, said he believed that his family were getting at him.
He added that he felt it was better to put his hand through the window than to punch one of them.
He pleaded guilty to criminal damage and obstructing a police constable.
District Judge Michael Fanning ordered a report from probation staff before sentencing him.
